5:30 pm
retiring after he worked in the store 50 years. his father first opened belmont in the district in 1943. >> more shots fired today in the war of words between president trump and a powerful republican senator. tennessee's bob corker told reporters today the president is, quote, debasing the nation, has not risen to the occasion, and tells untruths. senator corker also accused president trump of trying to govern by bullying and dividing. but the president lashed out on twitter today saying corker couldn't get elected dog catcher in tennessee, and he's accusing the senator of turning against him because he refused to endorse him. >> look, i think there were many people, i was one of those that hoped that, you know, he would rise to the occasion as a president and aspire to lead our nation instead of dividing it. it's obvious his political model
5:31 pm
divide. and he has not risen to the occasion. it's very evident to me. >> now, the duo saw each other face to face on capitol hill today. president trump traveling up pennsylvania avenue to talk about the gop tax plan. nbc's kristin welker is here with the details on that. so, kristen, some excitement in the halls of the capital first when a protester confronted the president. tell us about that. >> reporter: that's right. a protester did shout at the president, accusing him of treason, throwing some russian flags at the president. of course, this all comes as there are a number of investigations on capitol hill into russia's meddling in the u.s. election. that essentially the president is not even clear if he was aware of it, but it certainly was a stunning moment on capitol hill. but, look, it was just one of the stunning moments on capitol hill today, jim, because the other one happened when senator jeff flake of arizona announced that he's not running for reelection. now, he was
5:32 pm
polls to the more far-right candidate, the candidate being supported by steve bannon who is, of course, a former top advisor to president trump. but he came out today on the senate floor and effectively denounced president trump, saying that he's a threat to the democracy. so, this is compounded by that war of words that you talked about between president trump and senator bob corker. and it all amounts to effectively a civil war within the gop. you have the establishment branch breaking away [ inaudible ]. potentially what's at stake here, as you pointed out the president was on capitol hill to talk about tax reform. republicans still haven't hammered out the fine details of that. the president really doesn't have any room to lose a vote here. so, the fact that he's having this war of words with these two gop senators who are not going to be seeking
5:33 pm
still needs their votes. still, the white house casting this as a victory making the case that these senators are grandstanding and the president trump came to shake up washington and that's what's happening, jim. >> kristen, when might we see details on the tax plan from the white house? >> reporter: well, they say they want to get tax reform done by the end of the year. it's bish us. it's an ambitious time line. that is what they're going to be pushing for. president trump was asked about that in the roosegaarde enlast week and he identified the end of the year for wanting to have this accomplished. he needs a legislative victory. of course, they have failed to repeal and replace obamacare which was one of these signature policy issues that president trump ran on. so, all of the focus is going to be on tax reform. based on my conversations here, jim, it is still going to be very difficult to get this done, particularly now with all of this infighting, jim. >> stay tuned. sounds like a long road ahead. kristen, thanks so much. and these going to have much more on this story tonight on nbc nightly news with lester
5:34 pm
that's at 7:00 right after news 4 at 6:00. >> some virginia republicans are in an uproar over a new campaign flyer that compares a latina gop candidate to halloween monsters. but democrats have their own complaints about tv ads they claim are unfair to latinos. bureau chief julie carey takes a look. >> reporter: here's the flyer that just dropped into mailboxes in the springfield area. gop house of delegates candidate lolita pictured alongside monster masks dubbed a scary threat. the mailer sent out by the democratic party of virginia and approved by her democratic opponent kathy tran. dave albo is the republican delegate the women are vying to succeed. >> there's many reasons why i retired. one of them is the campaign has gotten so nasty. >> reporter: the state republican party chairman using far sharper language to condemn the mailer, tweeting, if the virginia gop did this, we would be called racist instantly, adding in another st
5:35 pm
compare a hispanic woman to a dog and a serial killer. a spokeswoman for the democratic party of virginia defends the flyer, saying this type of halloween themed campaign mailer is something that's been done before. but democrats also say the gop is guilty of even worse scare tactics like these tv ads from gubernatorial candidate ed gillespie. >> ms13 is a menace. yet ralph northam voted in favor -- >> reporter: they accused ralph northam of failing to crackdown on the ms13 gang, but latino activist say the spots demon ize their community. >> as a latina myself, i was very offended in gillespie's ad, hispanics were only portrayed as ms13, as, you know, gang members, as violent, and we are a robust, diverse community. >> reporter: as for retiring delegate albo, it's just basic bumper stickers on his truck. >> so, it
